Webinar “Test methods for determining the intralaminar shear properties of FRP”
In cooperation with Composites United the webinar “Test methods for determining the intralaminar shear properties of fibre-plastic composites” took place on 19 May 2020. Dr. Fabian Grasse went into detail about the characterisation of the shear properties of FRP.
Various test methods have been established for determining the intralaminar shear properties of FRP. These differ in the geometry of the test specimens and the type of load application, which means that different testing devices are used. This webinar will introduce the most widely used standards for the determination of shear characteristics (DIN EN ISO 14129, DIN EN ISO 20337, ASTM D5379 and ASTM D7078) and go into detail about the various advantages and disadvantages of the respective test methods.
